Default Is an 11:50 flight home (San Juan airport)?

Hi. Is an 11:50 flight too early leaving San Juan after the Golden (Sunday morning after the cruise)? I have never been to San Juan airport before.

Also, is it hard to get a table for 2 on Princess? (we like the late seating)

Thanks for any advice,
Marina

I have never sailed Princess but I would guess that if you have personal choice dining, a table for 2 shouldn't be hard to come by.

SJU is a growing AP. It is extremely over burdened on Sundays. Assuming you get there on time there is a VERY REAL possiblity that you will miss your flight b/c you can't get through TSA fast enough. They only have about 2 scanners for 5 cruise ships full of people. I have read posts about people making early flights with time to spare. What's your level of risk tolerance?

An 11:50 flight is a slam-dunk; no problem!

All depends upon what time your ship gets into port and is cleared for disembarkation. San Juan airport is a total zooey mess on Sundays! all the cruise ship passengers are doing the same thing you are, trying to get home. I seriously doubt that 11:50 am is doable. Seriously think about changing your flight.

It seems you've received a wide variety of opinions. I suppose you're just going to have to make a decision you feel meets your needs. I don't know if anyone has ever missed an 11:50 flight. I know that I have been to San Juan 3 times since the infamous 9/11, and I've always been at the airport by 10:20 AM for my flight out and I've always been at the gate waiting for my flight by 11:00 AM. Use your own judgement.

If you have an 11:50 flight out DO NOT take the ship's transfer. You will miss your plane for sure. Be one of the first off the ship, keep your fingers crossed & pray TSA is on it's toes that day. Assuming you make it to port on time, TSA will be your biggest hold up.

I agree that you should take a cab to the airport. There will be hundreds of cabs lined up to take people to the airport and it will be a 20 minute drive on Sunday morning and the cost is $20 plus tip. The only traffic will be at the port. Everyone else will be in church. San Juan is a very religious city. I still say you have nothing to worry about.
